IFL Watches & the G-Shock Custom CasiOak’s

G-Shock Custom CasiOak's

Wearable fashion has come a long way in recent years. They have grown from being accessories to necessities that complement one’s fashion sense and ultimately complete it. Watches have gone from tools that had one function, telling the time, to being a form of status symbol. There’s something different about someone who doesn’t use their phone to tell us what the time is. This feeling is enhanced when you realize the watch in question is custom-made.

Watch collectors are often looked at as snobbish elites who spend thousands on limited edition watch pieces. However, starting out a quality collection does not have to be an impossible dream reserved for the rich and famous. If you have a passion for it, there is nothing a little planning can’t do.

Does custom-made automatically mean expensive?

A notion exists that when someone says they own a custom-made fashion accessory, the automatic assumption is that it will cost an obscene amount of money. While this may be true in some cases, these watches will not have you breaking your bank. The G-shock CasiOak’s are hand-painted by extremely talented artists who take extra care paying attention to every detail.

Every watch piece becomes a work of art. Reading this, you probably think prices start in the thousands, however, these works of art begin at just โ‚ฌ549. Sounds too good to be true, but that’s how much they cost. While โ‚ฌ550 is not a small amount of money, watch collectors are extremely eager to get their hands on one of these. The wide watch market has completely fallen in love with entry-level customized watches. So much so that the demand has exceeded the output of a singular artist to keep up with. The Limited Edition Watches are so in demand that there is a secondary market on Chrono24, where some of these pieces are selling at a 200% premium.

Watches and fashion

Casio has done wonders with the G-Shock brand, growing it into not just a sports watch brand, but a fashion statement. It is a watch for every occasion now. While watch collectors who spend thousands on a watch piece might not be fond of having a watch for every occasion, the pieces at IFL Watches blend well in almost every occasion. Having a watch you can wear to the gym as well as a fancy dinner is truly amazing.

This certainly breaks a lot of unwritten rules when it comes to watch-wearing, but rules are meant to be broken in the best possible way. This collaboration could be what gets more people into watch collecting and ultimately have people looking at watches as more than just a tool but part of your outfit.

Not only does it come in black, but stealth grey as well should you want to switch things up a bit.

G-Shock CasiOak Inferno

As its name suggests, the G-Shock CasiOak Inferno is a hot variant that is a limited edition. However, it is worth it. Fiery streaks and abstract splatter on the watch face give your outfit personality. The same way crazy socks stick out in a good and fun way, this watch will do the same the minute it is seen.

G-Shock CasiOak Galaxy

Another entry into the bright department, this piece gives off a strong mix of controlled chaos that goes beyond the stars. This watch shines as bright as the stars giving the wearer an amazing feeling. This is shown in how quickly the watch has sold out.

However, the bottom line is that whatever piece you decide to purchase for yourself, it will be an amazing fashion statement that will be hard to ignore. All that remains is finding the right watch for you, this might be down to preference or what your budget allows, but you will not be disappointed with any of the choices on offer.

Watch storage
